A Beverly Hills teenager discovers the bizarre truth about his upper-crust family, in Brian Yuzna's twisted and transgressive allegory about how the rich feed off the poor (here, literally!).

Rich, handsome, and popular, Beverly Hills teenager Bill Whitney (Billy Warlock) seems to have it made. But for some strange, indefinable reason, he feels like he doesn't quite fit in with his family and the high-society circle they travel in. When he hears a secret recording that makes it sound like something might be very wrong with his family, Bill is determined to investigate — but what he discovers is far more bizarre than anything he could have imagined. Previously known as the producer of Stuart Gordon's modern horror classics Re-Animator and From Beyond, Brian Yuzna made his directorial debut with this truly twisted allegory about how the rich feed off the poor (here, literally!). Featuring some of the most transgressive imagery every put to screen, Society takes the concept of "body horror" to jaw-dropping (again, literally) new levels.
